Create four pleats around

To do this, using a tape

measuring and dividing by two.
At the center point, fold the
fabric over 1/2" to the wrong side.
Then, pinch and fold the
fabric together about 1/2" along
each side of the center point (leave
about one inch of fabric in between

Doing this should allow the

If the fabric looks loose,
